    Secrets (Free writing) There are a few things in the back of anybody's memory that have been repressed from childhood, and just emerge onto our consciousness once in the blue moon by accident or triggered by a random event.

Atticus tries to teach his children to stand up for what is right throughout the novel. On...

Depending on how you defi...
